After all, this is the land of bumper-to-bumper commutes, 16-lane highways, and people who want to get where they're going in a hurry.

For those placed in this unfortunate situation, there is an insurance pool called the Facility Association, which serves as a last resort for those unable to convince an auto insurance service provider to insure their vehicle with an appropriate policy. However, a checkered driving history and the high risk associated with unsafe driving practices will still work against candidates as far as auto insurance costs go.
The 407ETR is one of the first examples of uninterrupted access toll highway. There are no toll booths. Vehicles report access using a transponder when entering and exiting the highway. If a car has no transponder, then the license plate is photographed digitally. Monthly billing takes place, with invoices summarizing travel sent to the vehicle’s owner.
All factors of geography that affect car insurance prices conspire against Brampton. The best policy rate available for a 35-year-old man who drives an 8-year-old sedan and has no marks on his driving record $1,845 annually. Compare this to the same drive, but change the location to Guelph, 70 km to the west. The Guelph driver saves over $800, almost half the premium for the same insurance.
When comparing prices, make sure you know exactly what’s included in your policy. Carefully check the coverage, deductibles and liability limits. While it’s always nice to save money, a lower-priced policy might cost you more in the long run if you discover later that it doesn’t have enough coverage for you and your family. Look for the insurance coverage that best matches your needs, not necessarily the one that costs less.
If you live in Quebec, the provincial public automobile insurance plan covers you for injury or death due to an automobile accident, no matter who is at fault or where in the world the accident happened. However, under the Automobile Insurance Act, you also have to have third-party liability insurance of at least $50,000 for property damage. This protection, available from private insurers such as The Co-operators, covers any property damage caused to another party.
Many Ontario drivers have additional third party insurance coverage. This is a wise move since the provincial requirement is only for $200,000. Settlements from serious accidents often exceed this amount. Any amount in excess of insurance coverage remains the responsibility of the driver. To guard against serious financial strain, it’s common to add liability coverage to $500,000 and beyond.
This insurance is required by law throughout Canada. It covers the costs associated with damages caused to another person or vehicle in an accident, including medical bills, rehabilitation, lost earnings, legal fees, and other expenses up to the limit of your policy. As a practical matter, you'll want enough insurance to cover a judgment against you in a major accident so that your personal assets won't be put at risk.
